Legendary Film Educator Dov Simens Brings

Dov Simens has helped Quentin Tarantino, Will Smith, Guy Ritchie and countless others launch their careers in film.

On September 22 and 23, 2018, he’ll be bringing his acclaimed 2-DAY FILM SCHOOL™ program to Seattle Film Institute.  

This two-day program helps aspiring filmmakers learn the skills they need to produce and sell their films.   

On day one, Filmmaking 101, students will learn about writing, shooting, editing, and other aspects of film production on any budget. The second day of the program, Dealmaking 101, is devoted to selling their product (“It's called show business, not show art,” Dov says.). This branch of the program teaches students about financing films, working with agents and attorneys, maximizing grosses and profits, and more.

Limited spaces are available to the general public at a cost of $389, with an early-bird special of $289 for those who sign up before July 1. To sign up for this class and/or learn about other opportunities at Seattle Film Institute, contact the SFI team!

After taking Dov's class, I made 'She's Gotta Have It' and launched my career.”

I got Dov [Simens’] …Film School [tapes], shot 'Reservoir Dogs' and 'Pulp Fiction,' and launched my career as a writer who controls his scripts."
- QUENTIN TARANTINO (Writer & Director of Kill Bill, Pulp Fiction, Inglourious Basterds...)
